    Jade Hei Matau Fish Hook Pendant

    Stunning light green jade hei matau (fish hook) pendant.

    This is a natural piece of hand carved nephrite jade, carved by a Maori artisan in Lake Taupo and personally sourced by us, ie the genuine article carved by a Maori in New Zealand (the majority to be found on the web today are carved in workshops in China under the "supervision" of Maori craftsman who may visit once a year).

    In Maori culture the fish hook represents strength, good luck and safe travel across water.

    • A-grade nephrite jade with beautiful light translucency 
    • Fully finished necklace with feature jade beads
    • Maori carved from the Lake Taupo region of New Zealand 
    • Equally beautiful as mens jewellery or womens jewellery
    • This is a one-off piece. No two are carved exactly alike

    Measurements: length of pendant 4.2 cm (2.7 in), width at widest point 2.5 cm
